Titanic at the Reagan Library is a fascinating look at Titanic, combining real artifacts with the real stories of the people onboard the ill-fated ship.
This new exhibit tells the story of the unsinkable ship in a way no museum has done before. Artifacts from passengers, dispersed over time, will be reunited in this exhibit for the first time in over 100 years.
- A deck chair from the Titanic, one of only eight known to exist, as well as the only known “widows seat” deck chair from Carpathia.
- Sheet music for “Narcissus” which was found on the body of Wallace Hartley, the musician who continued to play his violin, even as the ship was sinking.
- The only known complete set of boarding documents and tickets from the Titanic.
- A pocket watch from an unknown 3rd class victim who was buried at sea.
- The Claim Form of the “Unsinkable” Molly (Margaret) Brown and other passengers and relatives, for loss of life and property.
- Movie sets, props and costumes from 20th Century Fox’s Oscar-winning “Titanic” movie
- Wreck wood from Titanic.
